Kenny Dehaes (Lotto-Belisol) came out on top in the Trofeo Palma, the first race in the Mallorca Challenge, beating Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp) and Ben Swift (Team Sky) in a sprint finish.

The Trofeo Palma is typically a race dominated by sprinters, with an 11.6 kilometer circuit race held within Mallorca’s capital.

Dehaes, who had not won a race in almost five years, was too good for Farrar and Swift, coming through in the final 200 meters to take the win.

While sprinters do typically dominate the race, that didn’t stop an early break going clear with Perrig Quemeneur (Europcar), Fran Moreno (Caja Rural) going clear. Despite an advantage that peaked at just under 4 four minutes the peloton were too strong, catching the break inside the final 20 kilometers and giving Dehaes the perfect launchpad for victory.

Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky) made his 2013 season debut in the race. Instead of sitting pretty in the peloton, Wiggins went on the attack to test his legs, taking the first intermediate sprint before helping chase the break of the day and working for Swift.
